Director Teresa Crea and her cast have tackled the problem by creating a taut, rhythmic choreography of imagers and by simulating the right focus of the camera. Sound, song and some subtle manipulation of language – including paralleling Italian and English – pull together to give the production a lot of strength and interest.”

(Oct 1997) Paul McGillick

“Each of the women holds their own- from the excellent snobbish village gossip (Laura Lattuada) to the naïve village peasant girl, (Rose Clemente)”

CULTURE MAGAZINE (Oct 1991)

“The others are voluble, vibrant, vivacious Rose Clemente, Eva Di Cesare, Teresa Haremza, Laura Lattuada, and Lucia Mastrantone…”

CANBERRA TIME (Oct 1991) Robert Macklin

“…the cast of seven women deliver superb performances, creating eccentric and authentic Italian women…”
